Hartwood StationHartwood StationA view of Hartwood station on the Shotts line minus the old footbridge (which was located in line with the first lamppost on the left hand side). Behind the camera, both platforms have now been shortened and the original Westbound shelter removed. 20.3.19 With electrification coming to the Shotts Line, a number of changes have been made to Hartwood station in the past year.

Having visited in the past couple of days for the first time this year, the change in the station even since my last visit in October have been drastic.

Changes made have included:

  • Eastbound 2 aspect signal, which was at the end of the platform has been relocated through to the other side of the road bridge
  • Both platforms have been shortened
  • Both platforms have new shelters with the old ones having been removed
  • the old foot bridge, which was half way along the platform has gone
  • a new stair case on the westbound platform to the bridge giving access to the old Hartwood Hospital has been built and is now the route between the 2 platforms, the eastbound ramp from before the upgrade remains
  • tactile dots indicating the platform edge for partially sighted passengers installed on the Westbound platform
